    I cannot seem to print after updating my MacBook Pro from OSX Tiger 10.4 to OSX Snow Leapord 10.6.  Can anyone help me?

    Try re-adding your printer in System Preferences/Print & Fax. Not sure what type of printer you have, but if it was old and relying on an Appletalk connection, Snow Leopard dropped that support.

    Hi All,

    Please help me fix this issue.
    Thank you,

    Please read this whole message before doing anything.
    This procedure is a diagnostic test. It’s unlikely to solve your problem. Don’t be disappointed when you find that nothing has changed after you complete it.
    The purpose of the test is to determine whether the problem is caused by third-party software that loads automatically at startup or login, by a peripheral device, by a font conflict, or by corruption of the file system or of certain system caches.
    Disconnect all wired peripherals except those needed for the test, and remove all aftermarket expansion cards, if applicable. Start up in safe mode and log in to the account with the problem. You must hold down the shift key twice: once when you boot, and again when you log in.
    Note: If FileVault is enabled, or if a firmware password is set, or if the boot volume is a software RAID, you can’t do this. Ask for further instructions.
    Safe mode is much slower to boot and run than normal, with limited graphics performance, and some things won’t work at all, including sound output and Wi-Fi on certain models. The next normal boot may also be somewhat slow.
    The login screen appears even if you usually login automatically. You must know your login password in order to log in. If you’ve forgotten the password, you will need to reset it before you begin.
    Test while in safe mode. Same problem?
    After testing, reboot as usual (i.e., not in safe mode) and verify that you still have the problem. Post the results of the test.

  • HT1338 how do i update my macbook pro from 10.5.8 to the latest software? also please let me know what do i have to do to save my files from being deleted when updating? thank you

    how do i update my macbook pro from 10.5.8 to the latest software?

    First you have to purchase Snow Leopard, 10.6, from the Apple on-line store for $20.  Install and on-line software update from the disk version to the last of the line, 10.6.8.
    Then determine if you can go to Mountain Lion, http://www.apple.com/osx/specs and if you can go to the App Store and purchase for $20 the download of 10.8.3.
    If you cannot go to ML, see if you can go to Lion, 10.7.5, do you have an Intel Core 2 Duo, i3, i5, i7 or Xeon processor at least 2 GB ram and 7 GB free hard drive space.  If so you can purchase a download code for Lion from 1-800-MY-APPLE for $20.
    If you can use Mountain Lion, skip the Lion step and go directly to ML.

  • HT1338 How can I upgrade my MacBook Pro from OS X 10.5.8 to most recent Operating System ?

    How can I upgrade my MacBook Pro from OS X 10.5.8 to most recent Operating System ?
    I just bought a Ipad Air and realized than my MacPro does not support Icloud.

    Upgrade Paths to Snow Leopard, Lion, Mountain Lion, or Mavericks
    You can upgrade to Mountain Lion or Mavericks from Lion or directly from Snow Leopard. Mountain Lion can be downloaded from the Mac App Store for $19.99. To access the App Store you must have Snow Leopard 10.6.6 or later installed.
    Upgrading to Snow Leopard
    You can purchase Snow Leopard through the Apple Store: Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard — Apple Store (U.S.). The price is $19.99 plus tax. You will be sent physical media by mail after placing your order.
    After you install Snow Leopard you will have to download and install the Mac OS X 10.6.8 Update Combo v1.1 to update Snow Leopard to 10.6.8 and give you access to the App Store. Access to the App Store enables you to download Mountain Lion if your computer meets the requirements.
         Snow Leopard General Requirements
           1. Mac computer with an Intel processor
           2. 1GB of memory
           3. 5GB of available disk space
           4. DVD drive for installation
           5. Some features require a compatible Internet service provider;
               fees may apply.
           6. Some features require Apple’s iCloud services; fees and
               terms apply.
    Upgrading to Lion
    If your computer does not meet the requirements to install Mountain Lion, it may still meet the requirements to install Lion.
    You can purchase Lion by contacting Customer Service: Contacting Apple for support and service — this includes international calling numbers. The cost is $19.99 (as it was before) plus tax.  It's a download. You will get an email containing a redemption code that you then use at the Mac App Store to download Lion. Save a copy of that installer to your Downloads folder because the installer deletes itself at the end of the installation.
         Lion System Requirements
           1. Mac computer with an Intel Core 2 Duo, Core i3, Core i5, Core i7,
               or Xeon processor
           2. 2GB of memory
           3. OS X v10.6.6 or later (v10.6.8 recommended)
           4. 7GB of available space
           5. Some features require an Apple ID; terms apply.
    Upgrading to Mountain Lion or Mavericks
    To upgrade to Mountain Lion or Mavericks you must have Snow Leopard 10.6.8 or Lion installed. Purchase and download Mountain Lion or Mavericks (Free) from the App Store. Sign in using your Apple ID. Mountain Lion is $19.99 plus tax. The file is quite large, over 4 GBs, so allow some time to download. It would be preferable to use Ethernet because it is nearly four times faster than wireless.
         OS X Mountain Lion — System Requirements
           Macs that can be upgraded to OS X Mountain Lion
             1. iMac (Mid 2007 or newer) — Model Identifier 7,1 or later
             2. MacBook (Late 2008 Aluminum, or Early 2009 or newer) —
                 Model Identifier 5,1 or later
             3. MacBook Pro (Mid/Late 2007 or newer) — Model Identifier 3,1 or later
             4. MacBook Air (Late 2008 or newer) — Model Identifier 2,1 or later
             5. Mac mini (Early 2009 or newer) — Model Identifier 3,1 or later
             6. Mac Pro (Early 2008 or newer) — Model Identifier 3,1 or later
             7. Xserve (Early 2009) — Model Identifier 3,1 or later
    To find the model identifier open System Profiler in the Utilities folder. It's displayed in the panel on the right.
    Are my applications compatible?
             See App Compatibility Table — RoaringApps.

    Can I buy a MacBook Pro from U.S.A's store online with a keyboard English&Arabic? How?

    That is great!
    But the price ismore expensive than the United States.
    In the United States's store $2199
    In the United Ararb Emarates $2499.73
    I can save $300 if I will from United States, but I want the Keyboard English and Arabic.
    Can I request that by contact to Apple?

  • Now I am in Thailand. Can i buy Refurbished Macbook pro from US appple store?

    Excuse me. I am in Thailand. Can i buy Refurbished Macbook pro from US apple store?

    The USA web store requires payment in US funds, from a US source, and with a US billing address for the account.  And as Limnos mentions, they do not ship internationally - they will only ship to a US street address (no P.O. Boxes so no re-shipper will work either).

  • HT4134 can I update my MacBook Pro which has Safari 5.1.10 to OS X?  If I can, how do I do it?

    Can I update my MacBook Pro (4yrs old) which has Safari 5.1.10 to OS X?  If yes, how do I do it?  I need to use iCloud but don't know how to load it.  I think it takes OS7 and I guess I still have 5.1.10.  All help is appreciated. Thanks

    It is not really clear just what you need to do to update:
    Go to the apple at the left side of the menu bar, About This Mac and what does it show for the Mac OS X version, under the Apple logo?
    Also, what else does it say about the processor and memory?

  • Can I wake my Macbook Pro from Sleep with the Remote app on the iPhone?

    I can't access my Macbook Pro remotely, specially after several hours of inactivity,, whenever I try to access content of my library through the remote app or the Apple TV I'm unable to wake my Macbook Pro up.
    My Macbook Pro is 2012 model (the last with de CD Drive) and it's running the Maverick OS, my questions are:
    * I'm unable to find the "Unable Power Nap while plugged" option on the energy saver tab... is that because the model of my laptop doesn't support that?
    * In order to access content from my library remotely, should the "Computer Sleep" option on the energy saver be on "Never" instead of the "1 hour" that I'm currently using... or is there a way to still be able to wake up the laptop with those settings

    Do you have a Bonjour Sleep Proxy server on your network?
    <About Wake on Demand and Bonjour Sleep Proxy>
    If you do not have a Bonjour Sleep Proxy server on your local network, then you cannot allow your Mac to go to sleep at all.  System Preferences -> Energy Saver -> Computer Sleep -> Never (slide all the way to the right).

  • Can't update my MacBook Pro

    Hello. I am trying to update my MacBook Pro and it doesn't seem to work. I'm using OS X 10.6.8. I follow all the logic steps: search for updates and restart the computer. But everytime I restart it, nothing's changed. Still have the same old version of all programs that I wanted to update. Could anyone help me?

    If your system is at 10.6.8, then that's the last version of Snow Leopard that was released and there are no more updates for it.
    As for applications, you can set most current apps to automatically check at start up (or whenever you choose) for updates. Again, if there are no updates available, you won't be notified.
    What types of updates, or which applications, are you looking for updates to?

    Holy Moly!
    Your'e answer is really for those kids with no experience in a terminal.
    The command line is only for pro users and should no be used by any DAU. Therefore no problem at all with "rm -rf" if you have changed into the correct directory first.
    One suggetion is adding these lines to your "~/.profile"
    # colors for misc things
    export TERM=xterm-color
    export GREP_OPTIONS='--color=auto' GREP_COLOR='1;32'
    export CLICOLOR=1
    # Set colors
    export LS_COLORS='di=1;36:fi=0:ln=4;34:pi=5:so=4;5:bd=5:cd=5:or=4;91:mi=4;92:ex=35:*.r b=90'
    alias rm="rm -i"
    alias cp="cp -i"
    PS1="(\u) \[\033[01;31m\]\h\[\033[01;34m\] [\w]# \[\033[00m\]"
    Than do a
    # source .profile
    at the terminal prompt in order to active the settings immediatelly.
    Now the "rm" command will always ask before deleting any file or folder.
    Unfortunately if you like to delete a folder containing other folders with several files inside you will go mad!
    One possible intermediate solution is
    # unalias rm; rm -rf ./System/Library/Caches/com.apple.*; alias rm="rm -i"
    But as mentioned before, if you have "sweaty fingers" while typing in Unix commands you should better stay away from the terminal.
